Some of them are very small and can easily sit on the shoulder of a child, while other reptiles will be difficult to be raised even by an adult.

These big marine predators actively come in contact with people, let people pet them, and derive undisguised pleasure from the communication.

Literally, all active entertainment here will suit tourists with children.
